Force Protection Key Performance Parameter (KPP) (Mandatory KPP)

ARQM 012


A Mandatory KPP that is intended to ensure protection of occupants, users, or other personnel (other than the adversary) who may be affected adversely by the system or threats to the system. Although an FP KPP may include many of the same attributes as those that contribute to the System Survivability KPP, the intent of the FP KPP is to address protection of the system operator or other personnel against kinetic and non-kinetic fires, and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) and environmental effects, rather than protection of the system itself and its capabilities.
